Seven File For Board Seats

Three incumbents are among seven people who met a 4 p.m. deadline Monday to file for three three-year school board terms.

The filers include Lisa Logan-Leach, running for a second term; Patricia Barksdale, who won a one-year unexpired term in 2005 and will now seek a full term; and David Graves, who won board approval on Jan. 24 to serve until the April 18 election in the seat vacated by Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs when she took office Jan. 1.

Others are Reno D. Wilkins, who also applied for the interim seat in January; Rasheed Abdul-Haqq, another interim applicant who was disqualified because he could not attend the screening meeting in person due to knee surgery; Nan Anderson, daughter of the late Councilwoman Helen Miller; and former Planning Board member Claudette Lovely-Brown.

Candidates will meet the public at various forums, such as those traditionally held by the Senior Center and the Plainfield League of Women Voters, before the April 18 election.
